A large aperture lets in more light than a small aperture.

The image of the daisy is taken by using a large aperture, you can tell this because the whole image isn’t in focus.

We then went out to take our own images.

These are good examples of large aperture and small aperture. The first image was taken using a large aperture. Which was f2. The second image was then taken with a small aperture of f22. The depth of field is shown more clear in the first image as it shows the sharp focus in the middle of the image.
